Packing for House Moving

By Joseph Subscribe to RSS | May 11th 2012 | Views:

If you are moving house then it is highly advisable that you use a house moving service. They will handle your furniture removals, and will generally help you to empty out your home without injuring yourself or breaking anything. Moving home is a highly stressful transition - and it certainly doesn't need to be made any more stressful by your having to move everything on your own.

However that said there will still be elements you do handle yourself when moving house, and apart from anything else there will be things you would not want your house moving service to help you with.

The majority of your work on this front is going to involve the packing of boxes and other storage containers that can help you to move your items. It will be your job here to box up any smaller items and anything personal at least, and this is something that requires a certain skill to achieve. For one, make sure that you invest in the best boxes possible, it's very important that you go for quality here, as otherwise you can find you have problems such as the bottom giving out which can cause your belongings to fall and break. Your removals service will know how to correctly hold boxes, but it's important to ensure you help them as much as possible.

Meanwhile you must ensure that your boxes are well labelled. Use a good marker pen or a set of white stickers and be sure to label things as 'fragile' for instance if they are breakable (to ensure that they don't get put to the bottom of piles), heavy where appropriate (to help protect your lifters' backs) and which way up they need to go so that they don't get turned on their head.

Meanwhile you should also look at what you are going to store together in the same boxes. You don't want to keep fragile items with heavy items for instance - otherwise the heavy items could crush the breakable ones if the box tips over. Similarly by keeping things to a similar 'theme' you can make it much easier when it comes to unpacking them.

It's also important that you properly pack and wrap the items inside the boxes for your house moving company. The main thing to do is to ensure that they move as little as possible inside - so fill in any empty spaces with tissue and or bubble wrap to accomplish this.

At the same time it's also a good idea to consider how you are going to think about using additional wrap to protect the items inside the boxes. As well as preventing them from moving that is, you can also for instance wrap any parts that might otherwise come lose, or that protrude or are particularly more delicate and this will then prevent any of those parts snapping off.

You will also find of course that some of the items you wrap won't be going in boxes at all – ornaments for instance that are too large might just be wrapped up. It's still worth again protecting the protruding parts, as well as sharp edges, and giving them lots of padding with bubble wrap and tape.
